"
This is big league stuff." -- Maestro Robert Lowry, Rock Hill Chamber Orchestra

"Charles Hulin IV offered powerful performances. A Rachmaninoff “Etude Tableau” was notable for its raw vigor and ferocity. Ravel’s “Sonatine” was a delight with its pastel tonal colorings and delicate fingerwork. Liszt’s “Sonetto No. 104 del Petrarca” was a spellbinding poetic excursion." --Sterling Adams, Carolina Morning News

ABOUT THE ARTIST:=================================
Dr Hulin has been involved with Da Capo since our inception in 2006 and is a frequent collaborator with the Prillamans as well as a Master pianist and consultant on our piano faculty. Having taught at the University of Richmond and the College of William and Mary, Dr. Charles J. Hulin IV now resides in historic Murfreesboro, NC where he teaches piano and music history at Chowan University. A North Carolina native, he is a graduate of Peabody Conservatory and The Juilliard School of Music where he studied with Ellen Mack and Yoheved Kaplinsky as well as taking part in the master classes of Leon Fleisher.

In 1996, he was awarded second prize in the Hilton Head International Piano Competition. Since that time, he has presented numerous solo and chamber music performances on college campuses including the United States Naval Academy, University of North Carolina, University of Oklahoma, Longwood University, Winthrop University, Mansfield University, and Hartwick College. He has performed with the Charlotte and North Carolina Symphonies, the Georgetown University Orchestra and Chorus, the Columbia Civic Orchestra, the American Youth Harp Ensemble, and the Richmond Ballet. In the fall of 2007, Dr. Hulin and tenor Jeff Prillaman were awarded honorable mention for their collaborative performances of Liszt and Duparc in the William Garrison Competition.

Dr. Hulin has given premieres of piano works by Scott Eric Petersen, Mark Lackey, Walter Braxton, and James M. Guthrie and has participated in the University of Richmond’s Third Practice Electro-Acoustic Festival. A composer himself, his recent works have included Thanksgiving Sonata for horn and piano, a Christmas cantata entitled The Promise of a Child, and One Thousand, which is an expansive improvised work exploring the human cost of natural and manmade disasters. Also deeply interested in the historical practice of music in the United States, Dr. Hulin is currently developing lecture performances that explore an anthology of piano works collected by his ancestors who lived in Warren County, NC in the 1830s.

Since its founding in 1998, Dr. Hulin has served as the program coordinator for the Lasker Summer Music Festival
www.laskersummermusicfestival.org which is an organization that supports Christian musicians in integrating their faith and their artistic work. He also writes informally about music and life at Chowan at www.hulinmusic.blogspot.com.
